The ‘proper’ name for a Vampire Red Carpet Treatment is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy.
It’s essentially a regenerative therapy, which uses nothing but the patient’s own blood. The treatment is performed under general anesthetic cream. Platelets are tiny blood cells that play a crucial part in helping the body stop bleeding – as well as repairing damaged blood vessels and cells.
You could think of them as little powerhouses, which release proteins for growth when they come in contact with the body’s tissue. In PRP, a needle is used to draw blood from the client’s arm. The blood is then spun in a machine to remove the platelets.
The plasma from the blood is extracted, and lightly deposited onto the client’s face using tiny acupuncture-style needles to rejuvenate their face.
PRP with Microneedling is used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. It rejuvenates the under-eye area; tightens stubborn open pores; plumps and volumizes any area (e.g. cheeks) where someone might otherwise get fillers.
